There is a national trend to refer patients requiring complex oncologic surgery to tertiary high-volume cancer centers. However, this presents major access challenges to Hawai'i patients seeking care. The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that complex oncologic surgery can be safely performed at community hospitals like those in Hawai'i. From July 2007 to December 2014, 136 patients underwent complex oncologic procedures at a community hospital in Hawai'i by a single general surgeon. Cases included esophagogastric, hepatobiliary, pancreatic, rectal, and retroperitoneal resections...

REVIEW
Nicolas Golse, René Adam
Liver metastases from breast cancer (LMBC) have long been considered as a systemic disease because of the hematological route of dissemination, requiring noncurative management. In fact, despite recent advances in drug therapies personalized to tumor phenotype, the chances of a cure are nil and there is little hope of long-term survivors after nonsurgical management alone. By contrast, there is a growing evidence in the literature for satisfactory long-term results after a combination of chemotherapy and liver resection, with 5-year survival reaching >40% in some series...

BACKGROUND: The bile salt-activated transcription factor farnesoid X receptor (FXR) is a key mediator of proliferative bile salt signalling, which is assumed to play a role in the early phase of compensatory liver growth. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of a potent FXR agonist (obeticholic acid, OCA) on liver growth following portal vein embolization (PVE). METHODS: Rabbits were allocated to receive daily oral gavage with OCA (10 mg/kg) or vehicle (control group) starting 7 days before PVE (n = 18 per group), and continued until 7 days after PVE...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the present study was to evaluate the usefulness of a new imaging device, the Medical Imaging Projection System (MIPS), which uses the indocyanine green emission signal and active projection mapping, for liver resection. BACKGROUND: During anatomic liver resection, surgeons cannot completely view the intraparenchymal structure. Although a fluorescent imaging technique using indocyanine green has recently been developed for hepatobiliary surgery, limitations in its application for real-time navigation persist...

Anatomical liver resection with the Glissonean pedicle isolation is widely approved as an essential procedure for safety and curability. Especially, the extrahepatic Glissonean pedicle isolation without parenchymal destruction should be an ideal procedure. However, the surgical technique has not been standardized due to a lack of anatomical understanding. Herein, we proposed a novel comprehensive surgical anatomy of the liver based on Laennec's capsule that would give a theoretical background to the extrahepatic Glissonean pedicle isolation...

The ability to modulate the future liver remnant (FLR) is a key component of modern oncologic hepatobiliary surgery practice and has extended surgical candidacy for patients who may have been previously thought unable to survive liver resection. Multiple techniques have been developed to augment the FLR including portal vein embolization (PVE), associating liver partition and portal vein ligation (ALPPS), and the recently reported transhepatic liver venous deprivation (LVD). PVE is a well-established means to improve the safety of liver resection by redirecting blood flow to the FLR in an effort to selectively hypertrophy and ultimately improve functional reserve of the FLR...

The anatomical variations of superior mesenteric artery branches are common. In this study we reported an extra ordinary morphology and branching of superior mesenteric artery, during our routine dissection of a 38-year-old Sudanese male cadaver, where the superior mesenteric artery forms an arch over the confluence of inferior vena cava and left renal vein. Other variations observed were: 1) The superior mesenteric artery shares the same origin of celiac trunk; 2) The unusual origin of right hepatic artery...

BACKGROUND: Portal vein stenosis develops due to different causes including postoperative inflammation and oncological processes. However, limited effective therapy is available for portal vein stenosis. The objectives of this study were to evaluate the efficacy of a portal vein stent for portal vein stenosis after hepatobiliary pancreatic surgery and to determine the factors associated with stent patency. METHODS: From December 2003 to December 2015, portal vein stents were implanted in 29 patients who had portal vein stenosis after hepatobiliary pancreatic surgery...

We report 2 cases where afferent loop syndrome after hepatobiliary and pancreatic surgery was successfully treated with percutaneous drainage. Case 1: A 74-year-old man who had undergone pancreaticoduodenectomy for pancreatic cancer presented with cholangitis, obstructive jaundice, and dilatation of the elevated jejunum. These conditions were attributed to obstruction of the elevated jejunum on the anal side due to peritoneal dissemination. Subsequently, percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage was performed, and the dilated jejunum was drained through the approach route...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate interstage liver function in associating liver partition and portal vein occlusion for staged hepatectomy (ALPPS) using hepatobiliary scintigraphy (HBS) and whether this may help to predict posthepatectomy liver failure (PHLF). BACKGROUND: ALPPS remains controversial given the high rate of liver-related mortality after stage 2. HBS combined with single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) accurately estimates future liver remnant function and may be useful to predict PHLF...

Hepatobiliary and pancreatic (HBP) cancers are associated with high cancer-related death rates. Surgery aiming for complete tumor resection (R0) remains the cornerstone of the treatment for HBP cancers. The current progress in the adjuvant treatment is quite slow, with gemcitabine chemotherapy available only for pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDA). In the advanced and metastatic setting, only two targeted drugs have been approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA), which are sorafenib for hepatocellular carcinoma and erlotinib for PDA...

An 82-year-old woman with common bile duct (CBD) dilatation observed during routine ultrasonography was referred to our hospital. Preliminary blood tests revealed elevated levels of hepatobiliary enzymes. Computed tomography (CT) scan showed lower bile duct wall thickening and enhancement. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy revealed mildly swollen papilla of Vater, without ulceration. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiography demonstrated that the CBD was grossly dilated with a constriction in the lower part. The final diagnosis indicated poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma of duodenal papilla with signet-ring cells; pT3N0M0, stage IIA (Unio Internationalis Contra Cancrum, 7th edition), for which subtotal stomach-preserving pancreaticoduodenectomy (SSPPD) was performed...

Since the first laparoscopic procedure, there has been an steady increase in advanced minimally invasive surgery. These procedures include oncological colorectal, hepatobiliary and upper gastrointestinal surgery. Implementation of these procedures requires different and new skills for the surgeons who wish to perform these procedures. To accomplish this surgical teaching program, a mentorship seems the most ideal method to teach the apprentice surgeon these specific skills. At the VU medical center a teaching program for a minimally-invasive esophagectomy for esophageal cancer started in 2009...

BACKGROUND: The impact of different causative factors of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICC) on disease outcome remains largely unknown. This study aimed to evaluate the prognosis of ICC patients with different pathogenic factors after hepatectomy. METHODS: Data of 731 consecutive patients undergoing R0 liver resection for ICC at The Eastern Hepatobiliary Surgery Hospital between 2004 and 2010 were analyzed. These patients were divided into the hepatitis B virus-related (HBV-ICC, n = 519), hepatolithiasis-related (stone-ICC, n = 87), HBV plus hepatolithiasis-related (HBV/stone-ICC, n = 45), and other etiologies-related (other-ICC, n = 80) ICC groups...
